The Waykeeper clan has a controlling stake of the Dwarven Council, which holds court at the stronghold of Glimspire. The Waykeeper clan claims Glimspire as their clanhold, and also controls and maintains the passes nearby. As these passes are part of an important trade route from the Shining City Mirindil, the clan has more contact with non-dwarves than many of the other mountain clans. Their control and maintenance of the passes and trails throughout their region also earned them their clan name many centuries ago, before the rule of the current elder, Bradag Stormwielder. The Deepwardens are the elite frontline troops of the Waykeeper clan, and are charged with clearing, securing, and maintaining the underground passes throughout the Crestheart Mountains.
